CLOSED Feel like a contest?

And the winner is . . . Karen Russo!

It's been a crazy week or so around here. Lots of running around which, quite frankly, feels fantastic after being cooped up writing for so many months. The next book is already taking shape and I know it won't be long before I'm a total writing bot again, a zombie at the laptop, so I'm taking advantage of my freedom while I can.

But that doesn't mean we can't have another contest.How about some gorgeous Elann Pure Bamboo? Four skeins of #314, Devonshire Cream. (Don't you love yarn names? They're almost as good as nail polish shade names.) (Man, was that a clumsy sentence.) You can read all about Pure Bamboo right here.

And you can enter the contest right here by sending me an email with BAMBOO in the subject header. The winner will be posted Saturday night.

Turns out I'll have two books out this summer. Berkley is reissuing GIRLS OF SUMMER in trade paperback on July 7th. The cover is wonderful and the book is a favorite of mine. You can visit my website to read a chapter or two and see what you think.

I often wondered how yarn makers come up with the names for their yarns, but I do particularly like the name of this one.

Congratulations on the book release, and release!

Congrats on the re-release!

My dyer has fun coming up with names for her yarns. Sometimes the names are because it's obvious like Bacon and Embers. Sometimes they were for a reason - there's a colorway called "For Georg" because her 5-year-old daughter designed it to send to me, and then everyone else wanted the same. But Bruised Ego? Teenage Romance? I have no idea where those names came from.

lol, I am a nail tech and used to dream of the namers of polish sitting with drinks tossing names around. Maybe the yarn namers do the same! (at least in my dreams!)

I'm so happy about the yarn and the cover reminds me of home--the Florida Keys!!
